Last Words of Louis XVI Temporary Exhibit

Cuban artist Carlos Gamez de Francisco, the Ali Center’s 2010 Artist in Residence, created a series of paintings for a major exhibit that showcased a thematic body of work produced during his residency. The Last Words of Louis XVI consisted of over 30 paintings that included both watercolor and ink, and a combination of acrylic and oil. Gamez de Francisco’s intellectual exploration of the Court of Louis XVI of France has special meaning for Louisville as our city was named after King Louis in 1780.
